The player community for Bethesda’s newest open-world role-playing game, Starfield, is still reeling from the wide-ranging effects of the previous update, Update 1.7.33. Bethesda has announced that it is releasing another update called “Starfield 1.7.36.

And finally, they have added FOV sliders to Starfield. The new patch for Starfield has also fixed some other errors players have been facing. We have detailed them below.

According to the game developer, the update will take care of the following issues:

GENERAL

  • FOV: Sliders are now available in Settings that allow players using first person or third person to adjust their FOV.

PERFORMANCE AND STABILITY

  • [PC ONLY] Improved stability for Intel Arc GPUs.
  • Various additional stability and performance improvements.

QUEST

  • Echoes of the Past: Addressed an issue where tunneling creatures could pick a location that would prevent progression

As you can see, this is a smaller update compared to the previous one, which elicited expressions of dismay and rage over the removal of the “puddle glitches” that allowed players to harness literally unlimited cash from three puddles in Akila City.

The update also removed other similar glitches in other locations in the universe as well.

This release is the second in an expected series of updates that Bethesda had previously announced in September.

Even though it did not specify when it would, Bethesda promised to bring in native DLSS support after several players complained about performance issues in high-end Nvidia RTX CPUs.

This same issue prompted Nvidia to release a new Game Ready driver and prodded modder PureDark to attempt to use a Patreon paywall on his DLSS3 mod that hackers later cracked. It also resulted in the creation of a free DLSS3 mod that was uploaded to Nexus later on.
